have been building jobs those first two years instead of passing the obama care act. with regard to even the stimulus the way he structured that, obviously we have issues with the structure. but if you look at where that money was invested and not going into needed infrastructure projects that he's talking about now. $1 trillion was spent in that and if infrastructure he cease as a problem he could have invested more at that point. if you look across the board it's a matter of priorities and he didn't make a priority of changing the tone in washington or creating jobs at that point when he really could. and that's something that we need to work to move on into the future. host: our last call for chairman of the republican party in mecklenburg north carolina. caller: i want to say that i'm for romney this year. i gave obama a chance four years, and it's gotten worse. i'm not racist. this hasn't got anything to do with parties or race. it's got something to do with country. host: you voted for the president from 2008 you're not in 2012, what is the difference in then and now? calle
with graduate degrees and lot of them can't finted - find jobs these days. obama got 60 percent of the vote there. that was a growing african-american community there as well. and so obama has target to get out and vote. african-american voters and singleles and crowd. and they would like to get the same turn out. romney has to go in the old neighborhood in the outer suburbs was columbus and by the way, that is where a number of romny and ryan campaigns. >> we are not ready for the yet. but who do you see winning the election? >> i see romney winning the election. i see him generally ahead in the polls and i see him, i see president obama at fren percent. that is not because people don't know him. you have 53 percent last time. 100 percent of the people know him and observed him closely for four years and you can't help but observe the president closely and only 47 percent are voting for him f. the election were held would he have the 270 vote majority nailed i think so but not sure. we have seen the situation where winninglet popular vote didn't win the electorial vote. but he's clearly wi

-growth and pro jobs to turn this thing around and, obama doesn't and when people look at the last four years they are disappointed, they must be. look, we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. and, there are 22 million americans struggling to find work and 3.5 million more women in poverty and take home pay has gone down $4300 per family on average and it is not the right direction, we are headed in the wrong direction and you have president obama, you are right. he has a glossy brochure and i've looked at that brochure and as you know i played the role of obama during the debate preps and it is more of the same and you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and hasn't worked by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot here in ohio and that will result according to
president of the law review. in his second year, obama won the job. >> although i'm honored and i think people can say that my election symbolizes some progress, at least within the small confines of the legal community, i think it's real important to keep the focus on the broader world out there and see that for a lot of kids, the doors that have been opened to me aren't open to them. >> narrator: the african-american editors were ecstatic. >> i think a lot of the minority editors on the review expected him to use his discretion to the maximum extent possible to empower them. >> there was an expectation on the part of his more progressive colleagues at the law review that he would side with them on issues. >> barack was reluctant to do that. it's not that he was out of sympathy with their views, but his first and foremost goal, it always seemed to me, was to put out a first-rate publication. and he was not going to let politics or ideology get in the way of doing that. >> narrator: only one african-american student received a top editor's job. conservative members were given three. >>
the 12 million jobs he's promised? or what barack obama's going to do in his second term? do you have any sense of that? >> well, in the case of the 12 million jobs, as we know, you don't have to do anything and you'll get 12 million jobs. any number of economists and moody's analytics have predicted that simply by keeping present policies in place, 12 million jobs will be created over that period. so it's not much of a boast. as for the tax policy, my guess is that he doesn't know and he is just saying things. he has said he wants to cut taxes -- rates by 20%. and i believe he does and would. but when you ask him why that won't be a $5 trillion increase in the deficit, he says -- and i love the third person, "if mitt romney says there won't be an increase in the deficit, there won't be. that's why and how." >> i know how he could, because some of the studies he cites make assumptions that would let him become revenue neutral. he could take the major deductions away from everyone making more than $100,000. that would effectively do it according to one of the studies. he could also elimina

of the economy created the most jobs has been the oil and gas industry. the very industry that barack obama has been trying to hold back. >> now he is saying, i'm all in favor of that. i'm a big backer of that. which if that happened in a second term would be a good thing. >> well, if we have a bubble in energy prices, you know, that great job creator may not be there. >> natural gas is no bubble because the supply is so enormous. take your point on gasoline otherwise. well, president obama may be touting an economic turn-around, but will whatever progress we have made come to a halt in january with that so-called tax cliff looming. americans are set to face a this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on an escalator. get happy. get geico. melons!!! oh yeah!! well that was uncalled for. folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy, ronny? happier than gallagher at a farmers' market. get happy. get geico. >> well, president obama may be touting economic progress in his push for re-elect

because he thinks president obama is the best person of the job. i don't think general powell is prone to make decisions on people based on skin color. i would agree strongly about the comments made by mr. sununu, even though i used to work under him at the white house. i think people base endorsements on who they think is the best person for the job. i am proud that an african-american is president of the united states. i happen to support mitt romney, and i made that decision based on the facts of what i think are the important issues that move me. i'm sorry that governor sununu made a comment like that. >> listening to what you are saying, joe, where is the outrage from your party about this statement? >> i think there are so many statements made in the closing days of the campaign, nobody is paying attention to the comments. the race is very close, and i agree with governor dean, endorsements don't mean a whole lot. except in a case like this. where the race will be razor thin, the margin of victory may be razor thin. any endorsement is certainly helpful to mitt romney in iowa. >>
